Health Priorities and IMO Budget Submission
The IMO is holding a Special Briefing for all TDs and Senators on HEALTH PRIORITIES and IMO BUDGET SUBMISSION on Thursday, 18th September in Buswells Hotel, Dublin.
All TDs and Senators have been invited to meet with the IMO President and your elected representatives from the IMO National Specialty Committees representing GPs, Consultants, NCHDs and Public and Community Health Doctors. We intend to fully brief the politicians on the reality of our health services today and the very real crisis we face in terms of patient services and patient safety which is a direct consequence of years of cutbacks to General Practice, Public Hospitals and Community Services.
Our key message is that our health services need more funding, not a transfer of funding from one sector of the service to another, the service has been starved of resources for too long, services are at breaking point and patients are suffering– LESS IS BEING DONE WITH LESS.
We are asking you for your support in this important campaign:
Call or mail your local TDs and Senators and request that they attend the IMO briefing on 18th September in Buswells Hotel from 9am – 11.30am so that your representatives can let them know what actually happens in our pubic hospitals, in general practice and in community services.
